I use the medium of black-and-white collage to explore the expressive possibilities of form. The spontaneous rhythms of juxtaposed shapes and off-kilter symmetries playfully blur the boundaries between figure and ground, abstraction and representation.
The final work—a patchwork quilt by way of a cupboard full of Rubin’s vases and a multidimensional game of tic-tac-toe—invites viewers to collapse creation and contemplation. By constructing their own formal and chronological pathways through the dancing shapes that populate the grid, they engage in a process of looking that mirrors the act of creating the collages themselves.
This lively community of images are gathered together to celebrate. What remains in the wake of making and creating is a living and breathing patchwork of possibilities.
